Kitchen Design Style


Max suggests the following for your kitchen design style:

  • Keep the classic “kitchen work triangle” in mind when designing your kitchen. The stove/oven, sink and refrigerator all need to be in a functional work space. You’ll feel more comfortable cooking in the kitchen when all of your appliances are within easy reach.
  • Paths within the cooking zone should be 42 inches wide for a one cook kitchen and 48 inches wide for a kitchen with two cooks.
  • To make cabinet doors fully functional, plan enough space for the door’s clearance in your kitchen design.
  • Allow for counter space. About 15 inches on either side of a cook top and refrigerator gives ample work space.
  • Tiling a backsplash adds color, texture and personality to a kitchen.
  • When remodeling, add enough power sources for relocated or new appliances.
  • Plan for storage. Do you have enough storage for things other than dishes, glasses, pots or pans?
  • Complement your kitchen style with unique cabinet knobs and pulls.
